Straw Tameshigiri (Test Cutting) Mats - Pack Of 20

Product code: MW-1A

£28.33 (106 in stock)

Makiwara or rolls of straw mats are a traditional material for creating targets for test cutting. These mats are rolled into various thicknesses, soaked in water for 3 days, and then allowed to dry for a day before cutting. The resulting target is supposed to then accurately represent the consistency or resistance of the human neck or limbs.

These mats are very simple to prepare and full rolling instructions are available on request.  An average target would consist of 3-4 mats which are often held together by cable ties for a professional finish.  Now supplied with black edgings, these mats measure approximately 180cm x 68cm.

    Width 70cm produces a roll of 70cm height, which is fairly short, hence the low price. Otherwise does the job

    Arrived in quick time as usual. Not tried the mats as yet but they look well put together, no doubt will provide good testing material.
